Christmas Shows and Meet & Greets at the Shopping Malls 2016

It's that time of the year once again. The time when parents go hunting for cartoon characters dancing and prancing in shopping malls... all for the little ones' sake. But as long as they are happy, no?

And even though the boys have since outgrown these shows, Ale still enjoys some of them. Plus, it has become some sort of a tradition for me to continue compiling them.

So this year marks the 9th year that I have been compiling the list of Christmas shows and Meet & Greets whenever the year-end festive season rolls by. If you have found them to be useful all these while, do share this post with your family and friends. Thanks! :)
